My Favorite Lyrics From My Favorite Artist: Stray Kids Edition
Start writing a post

I believe that music is one of the most powerful things in the world. From the sound to the lyrics, music can convey any emotion and touch someone personally.

Music is also universal. Anybody, anywhere can enjoy and appreciate all types of music. I think sometimes people forget that music has the ability to bring people of every background together, but it is a fact that should be remembered.

For me, lyrics are a huge part of any song because I like to understand what the artist is trying to say through their music and possibly establish a connection between myself and the lyrics.

My favorite artist is a group called Stray Kids. They hold a great amount of significance in my life for a number of reasons, but their lyrics are a huge component of why I love them so much.

Before I jump into my favorite lyrics from them, I think some background on the group would be helpful. If you don't know who Stray Kids are, they are a South Korean boy group that was formed by the leader of the group, Bang Chan, rather than by JYP Entertainment, the company they are managed under.

The members produce and write all of their music, which makes the lyrics even more special to me personally. Their writing/producing sub-unit is called 3RACHA, and they are involved in creating the lyrics for all of the group's songs. I love that they play such a major role in the creative process because it makes their songs even more meaningful.

Even though Stray Kids fall under the K-Pop genre, they have many different sounds in their discography. From fun and playful to deep and serious, they are capable of adapting to various styles of music.

Accompanying their choice of sound comes meaningful lyrics, and listed below are some of my favorites from them. Side note: Their songs are in Korean, so I'm writing the translated English lyrics.

The Boyfriend Recipe

The ingredients to build a relationship are a little more complicated than just a bouquet of flowers and a box of candy.

2812

Relationships. Long distance or not, significant others are much more than just that. I would be lying if I said I did not love the sweet gestures that only a boyfriend can give. The flowers, funny phone calls, hand holding, breakfast dates, and tight hugs are special but my relationship and many others out there exist on much more than just these little gestures. It is a tricky concoction that consists of one part boyfriend and two parts best friend and would not work without one part or the other. While having a relationship may not be quite as easy as baking a batch of cookies, it has its own recipe (with a few variations for flavor) to follow for a good match.
